Sansa Clip+ is an unbeatable value. It comes in 2, 4 and 8 gb models and has a micro sd slot for expansion. Amazon has the 4 gb model for 39.99. Add to that a cheap micro sd card and you are golden. I think you can pick up a 16 gb card for under 20.00. Where else can you get a 20gb player for under 60.00. The sound on the Sansa is great too. Check out the c-net review. For around 35.00 you can get a 32gb micro sd card for a total of 36 gb for under 75.00. That price is amazing for a dedicated mp3 player. It is small too, and has a built in clip so it is good for working out at the gym or jogging/walking. The new model is the Sansa Clip Zip. I have not seen or held one but the C-net review is pretty good.

Ya know, I'm kind of torn on the sound of the Sansa clip. Granted, it sounds pretty damn good through my headphones (Sony MDR-7506), but, when I plugged it up to stereo receiver (we took turns DJ'ing :D), it sounded like caca. I mean really bad!

Mine is a 2G though, so maybe that has something to do with it...

I never use mine with the stereo at home. It should output the same quality through the headphone jack regardless. I know when I have used it through the headphone jack with an rca adaptor i have played with the volume levels to find the output level that sounds the best. I do use mine often with a set of portable speakers and am always pleased. I think the only players that have pre-amp output are the ipods but I hate apple. For home use I use a media center pc hooked up to the stereo and television. You could use a roku or other device networked to your home computer too. In the car I almost only use xm radio anymore. The nice thing with a media center pc is that I can play the stream only shows and rock the house.

+1 on the Sansa Clip. An amazing value, and it sounds great. It also plays FLAC files and can be Rockboxed. I hope they never stop making these.

It does have only a tiny screen, however, and the output level is less than what you get with an iPod. So for someone wanting to drive a larger sound system, it may not be the best option.
